It's utter ineptitude is both stunning and disturbing

The promotional blurb for "LA Slasher" calls it a "biting, social satire of reality TV and the glorification of those who are famous for being famous."

Unfortunately this film is so poorly made, acted, cut, and designed as to render it a complete waste of time. It's such a train wreck, you can't possibly even decipher what's happening on screen for its 90 minute runtime, which seems like five hours, at least.

There is no real story. Basically an anonymous white-suited masked psycho (voiced by Andy Dick, no less, which doesn't exactly raise the credibility factor) targets and then systematically slaughters airhead Twitter-made celebrities. Not in itself a worthless concept. If "LA Slasher" were made with even borderline competence it could be a poisonously fun black comedy.

The real problem here lies in the script, which is incoherent. A good first third of the film is spent introducing a slew of forgettable, woodenly-acted victims, but no story arc really exists. When they're killed, there's no pay off since you don't care about them. And Dick's slasher is either sniggeringly annoying (and unfunny) or downright vile ("Die you f**kin bitch" and variations thereof are his and the screenwriters idea of witty repartee).

Let's talk about the technical aspects for a moment. Even the opening credits are so badly created that they are almost out of frame in the HD cut I watched. Some of the set designs range from dirty warehouse to scummy hotel room to someone's living room. Even the Heiress and the Socialite live in places that are so badly dressed they look as if they were shot in the back of an abandoned flea market storage warehouse. Mischa Barton is one of many actors who stand around looking vaguely comatose, not knowing their lines or not caring to know them.

All of this amounts to a very depressing, pointless pile of garbage that's ultimately as empty and spiritless as the "problems" the movie's title antagonist sets out to "solve." At one point there was a "detective" (see the credits here on IMDb) so it seems a dramatic arc of some sort was written and even filmed, but apparently this film's aim is to appear as dumb as the targets it poorly lampoons. The best thing for "LA Slasher" to do is off itself. So many people will thank it.

Downrated by the wannabes

I believe the only way this movie got a rating that low is because of it hitting a nerve. In fact, everything about this movie is beautiful, especially the 80 - early 90-s stylized score. Well. of course, it's not a cinema Hall of Fame masterpiece, but it certainly doesn't deserve a score that low. The acting is bad - so bad to show how actually bad is the acting in modern shows and movies. Misha Barton fits perfectly, since she doesn't even know how to act. The rest of the characters - you want them to die from the moment they appear on the screen, that's the general thing about slashers. You might deny it, but you all know you want it - you would love to watch a whole Kardashian family slaughtered. Because that's the only thing they're good for.

#Shiny but really dull

L.A. has become steeped in reality TV, corrupted politicians and lots of drugs and one man has had enough. Donning a Michael Jackson type costume and choosing the name LA Slasher he decides to kidnap and torture the celebrities that anger him the most. He creates a Twitter account and tweets all his crimes as they happen(the police don't follow apparently). He even catches it all on a web cam for his website. As more people go missing the Slasher starts to become what he hated most, a celebrity.

The film feels like Scream meets Spring Breakers. Visually this film is awesome like the cool cartoon credits. The colours are rich and several techniques are used to further the visual experience but that's all you get in this movie. There is no real story or any kind of plot.

You do get to see Eric Roberts as the mayor and Danny Trejo as a drug dealer which is the only reason you should watch this one. If you like Andy Dick he does the voice of the slasher. There is no real violence in this one other than spraying blood. He's a PG rated slasher. Personally I think this film suffered from bad editing because there seemed to be scenes missing and whole ideas abandoned. They seemed to have the finances to do the film just no script. You'll soon forget the statement that's made about our Bieber/Kardashian world. So avoid this hash tag. 4/10.
